Malibu 6-cyl

I have been having problems with my hazard lights as well as turning signals. They have been replaced since the last recall, but have went out again. I also have been having problems with my fuel line, such as my vehicle not wanting to accelerate, it seems that it idles at a intersection light with the RPM's going up to the 2 or 3 then acting as if it wants to shut off. I had the fuel line replaced not even thirty days after purchasing the vehicle. I purchased the vehicle Jan of 2000, and I did see some investigation concerning the fuel line months prior to the purchase. My vehicle stopped on the side of the highway, and my vehicle was towed to a chevorlet dealer outside of lansing near lake odessa. I at that time was not charged for this fuel pump which they did try to charge but because it happened within the thirty days they replaced the fuel pump at no charge. I do see on this site that this vehicle a 2000 Chevy Malibu has been investigated due to fuel problems so I hoping this was looked into properly and brought to the surface once again because my pump was changed in 2000 and has been giving me problem since 2002. I have had tune-ups, transmission changed, routine oil changes, fuel line cleaned, diagnosis ran, and the results are nothing I'm hoping to get to the bottom of this before taking any documentation to a lawyer concerning a matter that has been brought to the surface but nothing done about it. Also I've took this vehicle back to the dealer where it was purchased and they can't find anything wrong with it. The question they ask is whether the check engine light has come on or not. I have all sensors checked out and that not the problem, but my gas leaves fast and I have a hard time accelerating on the residential streets as well as the high way. I also have been having to change the fuses in order for my horn and cigarette lighter to work. So someone please look into this because it's getting worse. Thanks for your time and consideration.

On July 7, 2005 I purchased a 2000 Chevy Malibu ls. The right two brake lights continue to burn out. Never at the same time, it's either the one on the outside or the inner one.

A major electrical problem in 2000 chev. Malibu. Which occurs in an occasional basis. The turn indicators work inconsistently, doesn┐T work when it is damped or raining. The electric/power window of the driver side and rear right side wouldn┐T go down, and the flicker switch from the dash lights doesn┐T work from time to time. Consumer has disconnected and reconnected the battery once for which restored electricity to the two windows (the other windows worked fine); however, I still experience problems with its turn indicators, which work inconsistently. I'm asking if this problem has any connection(s) to the recall of the emergency flasher switch?
